When our beautiful Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life opened in fall 2009, it wasn't actually finished. Our master campus plan included a Town Square and an open, versatile green space and multipurpose activity building. However, due to lack of funds, these facilities were not completed at the time. Instead, a chain link fence was installed at the southeast corner of the campus, demarcating the unbuilt area above the uncovered parking lot.
In 2018, with the help of generous gifts from our community, we finally completed the original plan and opened the Arrillaga Family Pavilion and Freidenrich Community Park, adding to Palo Alto a beautiful new environment for gathering, connecting and creating community.
Freidenrich Community Park is a multipurpose open field with a walking track, fire pit, garden space and surrounding outdoor fitness facilities. It hosts everything from camps and youth sports to community festivals and conferences.
The Arrillaga Family Pavilion, a flexible two-story building with reconfigurable multipurpose spaces and doors that open out onto the park, hosts classes, community celebrations, conferences and speakers, and private events.
